Donald Trump is expected to announce a 2024 presidential run at an event at Mar-a-Lago on Tuesday.
The former president has repeatedly teased another bid at the White House.
Some of Trump's advisers have reportedly advised against him announcing his intent to run so early.
Former President Donald Trump has promised a "special announcement" on Tuesday at Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, where he is widely expected to kick off his 2024 presidential run.
The event, scheduled for 9 p.m. local time, comes exactly a week after the midterm elections that failed to result in a much-anticipated "red wave." A number of Trump-endorsed candidates like Mehmet Oz, Blake Masters, and Dan Bolduc lost their respective races, and while control of the House remains up in the air, Democrats retained their Senate majority.
Jason Miller, a former senior adviser to Trump, confirmed to Steven Bannon on Friday that Trump, the presumptive Republican frontrunner, is "ready to go" when it comes to revealing his intent for a third White House run.
"President Trump is going to announce on Tuesday that he's running for president, and it's going to be a very professional, very buttoned-up announcement," Miller said on Bannon's podcast, the "War Room."
However, despite Trump's eagerness to get back in the ring, many of his GOP allies and advisers have reportedly been suggesting that he should wait until after Georgia's December 6 runoff election.
In Georgia, Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and GOP challenger Herschel Walker, a Trump endorsee, both failed to win 50% of the vote in the US Senate race. So, despite Trump's eagerness to get back in the ring, many of his GOP allies and advisers have reportedly been suggesting that he should wait until after the December 6 runoff election.
"I'll be advising him that he move his announcement until after the Georgia runoff," Miller told the Associated Press. "Georgia needs to be the focus of every Republican in the country right now."
Some Republicans are publicly blaming Trump for the party's failures in the 2022 midterm.
"There's only one person to blame for that and that's Donald Trump … The only animating factor in determining an endorsement is, 'Do you believe the 2020 election was stolen or don't you?'" Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey, told the Associated Press.
Outgoing Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan echoed the sentiment on Sunday, telling CNN: "I think it's basically the third election in a row that Donald Trump has cost us the race, and it's like three strikes, you're out. I'm tired of losing. I mean, that's all he's done."
Trump, for his part, is not backing down. The former president has not confirmed that he plans to announce his candidacy for the 2024 race, but has alluded to it many times during rallies and events this year.
"Hopefully, tomorrow will turn out to be one of the most important days in the history of our Country!" Trump posted on his social media platform Truth Social on Monday.
Correction: November 15, 2022 — An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Trump had endorsed Joe O'Dea.
